Austrailian band formed in May 2012, in August 2013, they recorded their first promo single 'Pit Of Misery' and two months later the band played their first gig.
The first half of 2014 was spent playing several more gigs throughout Brisbane and the Gold Coast. By May they finished writing the 5th song for their Debut E.P and were ready to record.

After a line up change and Clarke dropping the bass and moving to guitar they spent the rest of the year to prepare for gigs and hit the studio in November/ December to record their debut EP, 'Purity In Violence'.

You may have to cast your mind back sometime to the heyday of Slayer and Megadeth, when Thrash metal was this good and perfectly executed, each song full of energy, superb drumming, killer riffs and agressive vocals, well this EP does just that and for the same reasons.

To pick out 2 here i would opt for 'All Is Lost' with its superb acoustic style intro full of laid back melody and bluesy guitar that leads into a classic pounding thrash piece, a real headbanger of a track.

The other is 'Purity In Violence', starts with a great drum beat, then bursts into full on speed metal, half way through the whole mood changes for this really slow and moody guitar breakdown, followed by a really epic solo, before ending with some thrash metal.

Just a brilliant EP!

Rating 10/10
For fans of: Slayer, Megadeth, Exodus, Evile
